Explorer Scouts are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the programme
and direction of the Unit, with support and guidance from leaders. The section also includes the Young Leaders’ Scheme, where young people are able to take on a leadership role in one of the younger sections.

There is wider scope for activities like offshore sailing, campaigning, performing, parascending, mountaineering and expeditions.

As an Explorer Scout, you can also attend any of the other branch meetings that week as they all do different activities. By doing this, you will get the chance to do many more activities, not just the ones your branch organises and be able to achieve the Chief Scout’s Awards to celebrate your development as an Explorer Scout.

At 258th St Anne’s, Explorers meet on Monday evenings.
